>From C Not a joke, but well worth the space: There was a young woman who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given three months to live. So as she was getting her things "in order," she contacted her pastor and had him come to her house to discuss certain aspects of her final wishes. She told him which songs she wanted sung at the service, what scriptures she would like read, and what outfit she wanted to be buried in. Everything was in order and the pastor was preparing to leave when the young woman suddenly remembered something very important to her. "There's one more thing," she said excitedly. "What's that?" came the pastor's reply. "This is very important," the young woman continued. "I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand." The pastor stood looking at the young woman, not knowing quite what to say. "That surprises you, doesn't it?" the young woman asked. "Well, to be honest, I'm puzzled by the request," said the pastor. The young woman explained. "My grandmother once told me this story, and from there on out, I have always done so. I have also, always tried to pass along its message to those I love and those who are in need of encouragement." "In all my years of attending church socials and potluck dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say, 'Keep your fork.' It was my favorite part because I knew that something better was coming like velvety chocolate cake or deep-dish apple pie. Something wonderful, and with substance! So, I just want people to see me there in that casket with a fork in my hand and I want them to wonder "What's with the fork?" Then I want you to tell them: "Keep your fork...the best is yet to come." The pastor' s eyes welled up with tears of joy as he hugged the young woman good-bye. He knew this would be one of the last times he would see her before her death. But he also knew that the young woman had a better grasp of heaven than he did. She had a better grasp of what heaven would be like than many people twice her age, with twice as much experience and knowledge. She KNEW that something better was coming. At the funeral people were walking by the young woman's casket and they saw the pretty dress she was wearing and the fork placed in her right hand. Over and over, the pastor heard the question "What's with the fork?" And over and over he smiled. During his message, the pastor told the people of the conversation he had with the young woman shortly before she died. He also told them about the fork and about what it symbolized to her. The pastor told the people how he could not stop thinking about the fork and told them that they probably would not be able to stop thinking about it either.

Reported by Walter, the Stonecarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Russian Mugshot? Cute! Yulia Vorokova, 24, Ufa, south-western Russia Naked woman jumps out of car Police were left standing after stopping a car in a routine check - and a naked woman jumped out and ran off down the road. Two traffic officers stopped the car in Ufa, a city in south-western Russia, as part of a routine documents check. As one officer walked to talk to the driver, the passenger door opened and a young woman, wearing only shoes and socks, leapt out and ran off into oncoming traffic. Unable to follow as cars veered left and right, the police officers could only stand and watch in amazement as she then crossed over to the other side of the road and carried on down the busy street. The woman, later identified as Yulia Vorokova, 24, was eventually caught by police and taken to hospital to undergo drugs and alcohol tests. She also had slight bruising after apparently being hit by one of the cars although it was not going fast of the time. The car's driver was questioned but eventually released without charge after police decided they were not sure exactly what to charge him with over the incident. He declined to say why the woman was naked. Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: Is FireFox 31 OK? Dear Webby, I've received notice that Firefox now has new version 31.0 available for download. You were not enthralled with some of the other versions. Do you have any feelings about the latest version or is it a 'wait and see' before downloading? Peace Frank Dear Frank I briefly checked 31. Very briefly. For now I am going to use Chrome. Sure, Chrome has some bugs too, like closing when ignored for a while, but you can get back all of your open tabs with CTRL SHIFT T. I am still learning tricks, and not in any hurry to go back to FireFox. It seems that Firefox is suffering from terminal bloat. They definitely lost control of memory usage with their silly method of keeping the pages from open tabs in memory. If you are quickly searching a bunch of pages for a certain article or item, soon the memory used by FireFox, as seen in the Windows Task Manager, goes over 1 GB and FireFox really slows down. Then you have to axe and re-start FireFox. Until they stop that nonsense, I am going to boycott FireFox. Have FUN! DearWebby

Find a name for all of the more commonly used letters of the alphabet (Iris for I, Jasmine for J, etc). Your password for any given site will be the name that starts with the same initial letter, plus whatever combination of numbers or other characters you select. I have moved to this method since starting to do online surveys, and it makes it so easy to remember what my password is. If you do need a written key to the names that you picked, though - please don't store it on your desktop! By Verity Pink [13] By far the best method for passwords is Roboform. You can store thousands of passwords on the cloud. Even if you lose your computer, all your passwords are safe. The only password you have to remember is your password to Roboform. When you go to a site, where you have to log in, Roboform presents you with the different user names, that you have used on that site. You select one, and hit Submit. Roboform lets you sync logins on different computers, for example work, home, laptop, etc. If you change or add a login on one machine, the others will automatically sync.

>From Jack When I picked up my wife from work one afternoon, she seemed irritated. She confessed that the day hadn't gone well, and on top of everything else, a young customer had addressed her as "ma'am." "I'm not that old," she insisted. "I deserve more respect!" She vented the whole way home while hitting the scan button on the radio. Finally I asked, "What are you looking for?" She replied, "The oldies station."
On a family vacation one summer, we crossed Wyoming and noted several historical points of interest. The children were especially interested because they enjoyed the computer game "Oregon Trail," which gives players a taste of the hardships the pioneers endured. We stopped at the famous South Pass to look at the wagon tracks still visible in the dirt. Squinting out over the desolate, wind-swept landscape, my daughter nodded and said grimly, "This is where my oxen always die."
